Get over it! Juncker admits MAJOR Brexit mistake - 'I shouldn't have listened to Cameron!'

Brexit is 'tragedy and catastrophe’ says Jean-Claude Juncker

In a huge revelation, the former EU chief admitted he did not do enough to prevent the UK's exit from the bloc. Commenting on his position, Mr Juncker also insisted he did not defend the EU's point of view in the UK. Speaking today, he claimed he was too silent throughout the debate over the UK's membership to the EU. 

Speaking to The i newspaper, the former President of the Commission claimed the British public had been misled. 

He added: "I should not have listened to David Cameron

"He told me not to interfere in the debate in the UK, not to come to London, not to do interviews with the British press.

"I made a mistake because I did not defend the EU’s point of view in the UK.
